runDisney: Disneyland Canceled

Today the run Disney website had a bit of a makeover, and you can see that all the Disneyland events have been removed off for 2018. Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend for 2017 is the last event to happen at Disneyland.

Since runDisney didn’t open up registration for the upcoming Disneyland events, I think its safe to say we all got the sense that something like this was going to happen. Disney did confirm after they pulled the races off that it is due to the expansion of Disneyland why they decided to put the Disneyland events on a hiatus.

If I am honest, I’m saddened by this hiatus because I was on my way of getting my Legacy medal and another c2c. I am hoping they will honor my Legacy and once the races start up again, I will be back on track for that bling. I do, however (feeling’s aside) think it was smart on Disney’s behalf to put the races on a hiatus during construction. It would have been very chaotic, and people would complain even more if they had to cut back on some stuff or the course wasn’t in the parks as much as before.

Runners will collect a Marvel running pack that includes as event T-Shirt, race bibs and other items as well. There will be limited edition merchandise special to the vent and of course the amazing medals that wait for us at the finish line. To make the race a bit more interesting the top 3 runners will be awarded with a one night stay at one of the resorts hotel or a dinner buffet as well as  Captain America accessories.

Just like all the runDisney events the cause for this run will be making a difference for people in need as voluntEARS and volunteers from Chow Tai Fook help raise support and awareness of the Hong Kong Association for Cleft lip and palate. Runners you only have until July 31 to make up your mind if you will be joining Captain America and Thor race weekend. Will you join?

Since i love dogs and this run is dedicated to our four legged pups and its Disney i knew i had to sign up for the Virtual Run Series so i can get 4 medals, Coolcore towel and for those furry friends a collapsable dog bowl, and dogs tags. Plus its a charity event donation go to Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando!

runDisney: Dopey Challenge..Round 2!?

Im feeling a bit Dopey…

If your new to my blog welcome! And if your new I’m pretty sure that you are also a bit confused by the first line…so let me just fill you in.


Walt Disney World Marathon weekend sign ups are tomorrow, meaning the 5 year anniversary of this challenge…now my cousins and i talked and we said that we would all sign up together for the challenges 5 year anniversary and like i said sign ups are tomorrow…so were all signing up.

My cousin Olivia and I did this challenge back when it was the inaugural Dopey Challenge in 2014 and so there are a lot of emotions going on for me, it’ll be my first time back to WDW in about 3 years, Dopey was my very first event EVER, the first time I’ve experienced runners toe and this will be the longest run since I’ve had a slipped disc. So excited, nervous and terrified can pretty much sum up what feel right now.


Although i know what to expect for this run i don’t know if its a positive thing or a not so positive thing…i haven’t put my finger on that quite yet.. all i know is I’m definitely going to finish it again…hopefully.

I know in the end it’ll be fun and a great accomplishment but the anxiety that leads up to it is overwhelming…I just know that if i get in tomorrow ill be running with my best friend, and i will be DEFINITELY train and work on strength and conditioning  as well as losing some weight to make the run easier on my back…wish me luck!

runDisney: Virtual Running Shorts Take 2!

My all time FAVORITE runDisney event is back for another take with some paw-tific news!

If this is your first time hearing of the Virtual Running Series let me fill you in: The series includes three 5k’s to complete. Participants will receive a medal for each 5k completed plus a challenge medal if you complete all three 5k’s.

The best part is you can choose your course and who your run with, my personal favorite is a trail by my house and i love to bring my pups on the run! Its great bonding with them along with perfect exercise for the both of us.

Race sales begin April 11, 2017 so be sure to mark those calendars, this also is a great way to start in training for Disneyland, Walt Disney World or Disneyland Paris races plus with this training you get to start your medal collection or you add to them!

The charity for this run is Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando which will be celebrating 80 years of saving pets in central Florida. Now the proceeds of the race don’t go to the charity but if you can, you have the option to donate a little extra to the foundation.

Will you be participating in the shorts? Let me know in the comments below!

20 years of half marathons is insane, just like the Goofy Challenge or the Dopey challenge! But whatever run we do we can always count and agree that its the most magical run ever! If the miles weren’t magical already Disney has decided to step up their magic game and added a lot of 20th anniversary surprises along with special anniversary t-shirts and commemorative finisher medals.

So are you running this weekend? Let me know in the comments below your runDisney experience.
